Definition by design

In this black and white living space, art adds an element of colour, but the surrounding country and lake views are the real focus.

There are no walls separating the kitchen from the living area. Instead, a floating ceiling and tiled floor provide contrast and definition. Storage capability was important to the owners, so designer Ray Lind used full-length cupboards to provide the required space. A natural element is introduced by wood veneer on the cabinets, reflecting the home’s natural lakeside environment. Ray Lind of Martin Hughes Interior Design
